Officials let Floyd Mayweather and Conor McGregor use smaller gloves

Chris Eubank Jr prepares to make his exit after a training session at Mayweather Boxing Club

United Kingdom radio listeners will be able to hear live commentary of Floyd Mayweather's fight against Conor McGregor from Las Vegas on Saturday on BBC Radio 5 live. Representatives of both fighters appeared before the Nevada State Athletic Commission to request the waiver. The fans dictate the fight: if they want to see it, they get it.

But Ward believes Mayweather's achievements in the ring mean he has earned the right to fight who he wants.

Neither Mayweather nor McGregor have been shy in throwing verbal barbs in each other's direction in the build-up, but many experts have questioned the validity of the contest given McGregor is taking part in his first competitive boxing bout.

"The added footage of punches landed were edited in from the previous round and I always told people that he had a good couple of rounds before". Mayweather vs. McGregor is the spectacle of the age and it's all going down on Saturday, Aug. 26 live on Showtime pay-per-view. I don't expect either one of them to get into any physical altercation. Whether you are for or against this spectacle, one thing is nearly certain; Floyd Mayweather and Conor McGregor will have near record breaking numbers of eyes on them. I think Conor will have his moments early on. Trust me, you're not alone. "There's so much money involved, I just don't see how it doesn't happen". I'm glad Conor believes in himself. Some of the fighters Mayweather's fought would probably beat Conor McGregor as well; Conor can't really compete. It was billed as the "mixed martial arts championship of the world", and Ali expected a $6 million payday. "They're calling me my wife's name, my wife's Jo Horn, she can beat me in a fight, that's for sure!"

But Horn couldn't throw his support behind the UFC legend, giving Mayweather his vote in what should be a ripping fight.

April 16, 2017 - While posting an image of him wearing boxing gloves, McGregor writes on Instagram: "Join me in the preparation of my next fight, being announced very soon". We love our reality TV, and it doesn't get any more real than two colorful personalities who know how to talk the talk stepping into the unknown in a boxing ring.
